damn piracy debate. Financially viable? how so?
those people didnt buy anything, so they technically are only playing it because its free, so they are abstractly not even or EVER were even customers. You will also find a ton of people trhat pirate, eventually buy the game to. If i use someone elses washing machine without buying one, is that hurting the washing machine company because i didnt buy a washing machine and decided to use a friends washing machine instead? yeah, maybe, but thats not my problem.
If someone wants to share their games with someone else, it shouldnt be anyones business.
STEAm has changed the face of everything, STEAM has PROVEN that PC gamers WILL..BUY games at a good price.
you may or may not read this but i just listened to Friday the 10ths episode and it made me sad. What happened?? If i had itunes I would rate theses last 2 episodes as far down as i could. I expect better from the show that replaced the "hotspot". What happened to the game show that had special guest from the industry, that discussed gaming gaming news and events seriously. I really liked that it the guest that you had were really interesting to hear. 1/10/14 episode was so bad that it even made me miss Tom Magrino giving Neo Nazis a platform(i'm assuming that's what he was fired for and promising some kid and his dad, who called numerous times, $500 from Brendan Brendan Sinclair). Also i really hope that didn't go out live because ESRB description theater shouldn't be done live. I found your extra emphasis on the profanity was excessive and unnecessary for a live show at 3pm. Personally i would prefer that you remove the gameshow element from the show and bring back the hotspot proper but i know that's not going to happen so I'll ask you this. Please don't let Gameplay Devolve into a live shit show where everyone talks over each other and nothing is conveyed.
From a long time listener(Original hotspot - present)
What? When did this podcast come back? It seems that I've missed so many episodes exactly when I was mad at you guys because I thought you stopped the podcast. I hate this new GS interface.
I was kinda pissed how you guys never went into deeper discussions about Alien Isolation, that really disappointed me.
I love the podcast and don't want to troll, but I have to say this.
Tom McShea complains and calls people "to order" when they go off topic but when goes off topic and rambles about something he thinks relevant he does not stop himself... Hypocrite. I hate Hypocrites.
Anyway, another enjoyable podcast nonetheless!
Thank god the podcast is back! Its about bloody time Kevin! :D I love this show, and you are all legends!
@Kevin-VI demand more opening and closing theme music on the video. Freaking love that song
I've had my eye on Starbound anyway, but it looks like I should just go ahead and buy it after you guys talked it up so much. Probably I'll get the four-pack and give copies to my friends.
I had to watch this podcast before realizing that for the entirety of ep. 58, no one mentioned From Software, Demon's Souls, or Dark Souls. Crazy. I thought this was the Dark Souls appreciation podcast?
Testing to see if I can post anything... I keep trying to enter a long comment, and it keeps not showing up.
I came on here thinking, planning and saying something like "Yes, a new episode, and it looks like it's going to be a good episode." I was and am excited to see what they have to say about the new Alien game. I then, since I had turned off my light and it's dark in here, reached for the speakers to turn them on, what happened was I accidentally pushed over my mocha drink and it got all over the floor and the wall behind the desk... UGH!
It got all over my time sheets, and almost my check. I'm annoyed now :P. I want my mocha, but I don't feel like bringing it back in the room since I don't trust myself. Dammit. It pisses me off. Now I'm back and get to relax watching this. Yay! I'm glad you guys are still doing it video style; I don't mind the mere voice, but this is just better to me.
Is this the second GameSpot GamePlay video they put up ever since they came back, or has there been another one? I haven't seen any, so I'm assuming this is the second.
Soo..say if Spelunky is released for the Wii U this year, it will make it onto your game of year lists again :). 3 years in a row, there has to be a record somewhere there.
Glad the show's back regularly.
I played Eternal Darkness through last year with an emulator and yes it controls weird but the puzzles and story are still pretty good!
@DeVi360 Publishing now!
@sg_hobbes I am sorry to hear you didn't enjoy it. Hopefully you will enjoy our rhythm once we get accustomed to the new format.
@MatthewSnyder86Sorry, we should have talked more in-depth about it. Next time there's a news tidbit, we'll make sure we do.
@MatthewSnyder86 Just like how the game will disappoint you. LoL
@thanticoreWell, someone else has to keep me in line if I go off rails. It's not like anyone plans to do that.
@FrexerikYeah, finding content on the site can be tricky. I guess subscribing is your best bet.
@Frexerik Yes this needs to be added to the weekly shows section in the mainpage.
@Frexerik It's not just you. I couldn't find it using the site's search functionality. I got here through a Google search result.
@aiat_gamerThe video? I don't think you can download anymore. But the audio version is on Sound Cloud, iTunes, etc.
OK, it must be a length thing, this test comment posted no problem.
Can someone tell me the exact length restriction, please? This is very frustrating. And is my comment disappearing when it's too long, or just getting thrown into a moderation queue?
@NTM23 This is the 2nd. We plan on being live every Friday at 3PM Pacific. A show page will exist soon!
@Yukeshime A show page is being created! It should be no more than a few weeks and yes, we will live in a place!
@tgwenzCrossing my fingers for a Wii U and/or PS4 port. Terraria will make it on my list for the second time!
@MJ12-Conspiracy sweet cartwheel, yo
@AtheistPreacher @Kevin-V I don't think one exists, though I can't be sure. I can check with the community folks on Monday. I am not sure how Livefyre works in all honesty. I comment in several forums that use Disqus, and sometimes my comments seem to not show up and then just pop up 10 minutes later. I blame Nargles.
I don't think there is one, unless you are going way overboard, though I can't imagine that happening. Sometimes comments just get erased. There's no real reason to it actually. I've had it happen many times, and I've read others that had it happened too. It's unfortunate, but it can happen. I suggest you keep trying at a later time, but make sure to copy so you can paste again, if you don't want to have to write it all down again :).
Alright, cool! Thanks. Too bad I probably won't get to watch them live, since I work Friday's at two. GAH!... Hopefully it'll be archived though, like this.
BTW, possibly the reason my post wasn't showing up was that I was quoting Chris from the last podcast, when he said that a video game cover "Had a lady's b**t on it." If that is the reason... dumbness.
Okay, this is bizarre. My long comment showed up here briefly, then disappeared again. I'll just try posting it in short chunks over at episode 58, which is where I meant to post it originally anyway.
Thanks. We just cross-posted, but see above. I tried posting a comment in ep 58 that still hasn't shown up in an hour, so it makes me think someone must be approving the longer posts, and it's taking long on ep 58 because it's a three-week old piece now. Weird.
Anyway, very glad this show is back. I honestly like it even better than GiantBomb's podcasts.
I don't think it's a moderation thing, I think it's due to whatever runs the comments section. You may be right though, and perhaps I just said exactly what you said now that I think about it, I don't know.
See just below. Ten minute delay.
I was concerned because I was posting in the other podcast (ep 58), and my comment still hasn't shown up, I tried like three times. This was an hour ago now.
Seems like it must be a moderation queue thing. But it would be nice if I knew what actually sets it off.
@Kevin-V I assumed so, but just in case. Alright, thanks.
@NTM23 It'll always be archived, and the audio will always go out to the usual places if you have a subscription.
